The body of a man has been pulled from the sea at Herne Bay this morning.

He washed up onto the pebbled beach opposite the former British Legion club, where police surrounded him with a tarpaulin sheet.

Two police cars and initially an ambulance attended the scene, followed by a forensic investigation van.

A man - thought to have alerted police - was later seen talking to officers in the back of a patrol car.

The grim discovery comes ahead of a predicted end-of-summer heatwave today, with temperatures set to hit the mid-20s.
